Bersih 2.0: More Photos. Anwar Ibrahim suffered a bruise on his head

Bersih 2.0 Update 
Pakatan Rakyat has condemned the violent crackdown on the Bersih 2.0 rally which saw scores of people injured, including lawmakers such as Anwar Ibrahim. 

He suffered a bruise on his head and a cut on his leg after police fired tear gas on protesters at KL Sentral.

Another casualty was Shah Alam PAS MP Khalid Samad, who was injured when a tear gas canister, seen directed to the back of his head, hit him.

PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar said the police had repeatedly fired directly at the crowd, resulting in numerous injuries.

"One of Anwar's bodyguards has a four-inch gash wound on the cheekbone and my father (right), the opposition leader, is injured.

"My younger sister Nurul Iman was also picked up and placed in a FRU truck," she said.
According to Anwar's aide Eekmal Ahmad, the bodyguard Fayat Albakri suffered serious facial injuries.

"The cheek is fractured and he is undergoing a CT scan. There is a possibility that a surgery may be needed and a plate and screw in place (to help the fracture)."

Eekmal said Anwar is still at the emergency ward of the Pantai Hospital where he is undergoing some tests.

"The doctors will monitor him for the next six hours," said Eekmal.
